„Sarò da voi domani“ – „I will be with you tomorrow“
The Förderkreis receives an impressive introduction to the world premiere of Battistelli's IL TEOREMA DI PASOLINI
What happens when an angelically beautiful stranger seduces all the members of a Milanese family's household and then leaves them all - thus disrupting existing ties through habit? Pier Paolo Pasolini's film "Geometry of Love" traced this family tragedy back in 1968, and now composer Giorgio Battistelli brings the explosive material to the opera stage with IL TEOREMA DI PASOLINI.
For this exciting production - staged by the Dublin theatre duo Dead Centre, consisting of the British Ben Kidd and Bush Moukarzel - the Il Teorema mountain festival of the Förderkreis der Deutschen Oper Berlin allowed a special insight into the rehearsal work. More than 120 interested guests accepted the Förderkreis's invitation to get a first impression of the new production with the production's participants and excerpts of the staging. Interviews with director Bush Moukarzel and musical director Daniel Cohen, conducted by dramaturge Jörg Königsdorf, showed the topicality of the work's material and how exciting Battistelli's musical interpretation is.
The guests still only received first impressions, but the excitement for the premiere on 09.06.2023 is great and many guests will also be present at the premiere to experience where the longing for love drives one.
